New Orleans was one of the NBA’s healthiest, most injury-free teams for a lengthy stretch of this unconventional 2020-21 regular season, but as the race for a Western Conference play-in berth heads toward a conclusion, the Pelicans will begin a critical five-game road trip without starting forward Brandon Ingram (left ankle sprain). Meanwhile, starting center Steven Adams is doubtful to play Friday in Philadelphia due to a right first MTP sprain.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker, who last played since April 4 at Houston, has been upgraded on the injury report to questionable (left high ankle sprain) ahead of Friday’s game. Josh Hart (right thumb surgery) remains out for the Pelicans.
